This Agreement shall begin on the date hereof. Motor Cortex Stimulation. Introduction Motor cortex stimulation MCS and deep brain stimulation DBS are established intracranial methods for treatment of chronic, neuropathic pain. Patients are awake for part of the motor cortex stimulation surgery so we can test the electrodes and make sure they are in the right place. Recent studies have indicated that DBS is most effective in the treatment of intractable back pain.

Epidural stimulation of motor cortex through burr hole. Frequently after long-term MCS the analgesic effects of neuromodulation are diminished due to habituation on stimulation. This is an ablative method and, as such, brings significant changes to locoregional and distant nervous system 2 , 8. There are two fundamental techniques: cylindrical electrodes inserted by percutaneous route in general under local anesthesia or by means of plate-type electrodes with open posterior surgical access interlaminar microflavectomy Researchers have reported that about 60 percent of people receiving spinal cord stimulation have pain reduction or relief when surveyed one to two years after having the procedure.
